The exhibition program at the Solomon It. Guggenheim 
Museum draws upon two source categories: loans from 
other museums, collectors, artists and galleries on the 
one hand, and holdings of the Museum Collection on the 
other. The current exhibition entitled MODERN MAS- 
TERS falls within the latter group. 

The Guggenheim Museum, collection of painting, sculp- 
tare and graphic art is much too extensive to be shown 
in its entirety. Consequently, our selections, presented 
from time to time, entphasize one particular aspect or 
are formed around a central idea that calls for the in- 
clusion of specific tvorhs of art. 

The INAUGURAL SELECTION wliich was on view when 
the new Frank Lloyd Wright building opened in 1959 
was of an introductory character and ranged freely 
across the entire Collection. ACQUISITIONS: 1953-1961, 
presented here last spring, limited itself to post-war 
painting and specifically to many of the significant pur- 
chases made during the directorship of James Johnson 
Sweeney. In the 310SPERN MASTERS choice, the empha- 
sis shifts to the classics of the modern movement, ac- 
quired largely during the lifetime of the Founder and 
during the administration of the 31useum's first Direc- 
tor, the Baroness liilla Rebay. 

The purpose of this exhibition, further, is to stress areas 
of concentration and to shotv a few artists in depth. 
Brancusi, Picasso, Leger, Gleizes, Delaunay, 3Sondrian, 
Chagall, Modigliani, Mare, Feininger and Seurat are 
therefore represented by not fewer than five works each, 
while in the instances of Klee and Gleizes, as tnany as 
thirteen works are used to illustrate the strong repre- 
sentation of each of these masters in the Museum's Col- 
lection. 

In this connection, it should be pointed out that the 
Kandinsky group — separately installed and not car- 
ried in this checklist — is in keeping with the concept 
determining the 3IODERN MASTERS exhibition and that 
the 22 works on view may be regarded as part of it.
